History of Wilsonart UK


We've enjoyed 60 years of innovation, design and production of beautiful decorative surfaces, with no intention of slowing down. Our multi-national brand, Wilsonart International, was grown from a little company called Ralph Wilson Plastics founded in Temple, Texas, USA in 1956. We have sites in North America, Europe, Asia, all inspired every day by Ralph Wilson and the high standards to which he held the Wilson name. Here in the United Kingdom, we're based in Shildon, County Durham, and we're renowned for our top quality products and service levels.
